FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. PRODUCT

The founders of The Meat Club spent some 18 months searching for Australia’s finest produce. A list of the suppliers we work with directly is listed below.

 

Beef

Our beef is sourced and processed at Bindaree Beef, one of Australia’s largest, privately owned meat processors. Located in Inverell, northern New South Wales, our stock benefits from lush, fertile grass lands and enjoy no more than 70 days of locally sourced grain to ensure depth and consistency of flavour.

 

Lamb
Our range of Union Station lamb is 100% Australian and privately owned. Our farmers have a commitment to rearing prime quality free-range lambs while adhering to strict Australian humane welfare standards and using progressive, stress-free handling techniques. Our range of lamb is also hormone and antibiotic free, while being Halal certified.

 

Beef and lamb sausages

Our beef and lamb sausages are from Alternative Selection. Alternative Selection is a comprehensive provider of ethical and quality food source, offering healthy choices with full product traceability. It sources meat directly from farmers who practice stringent sustainable and responsible farming practices.

 

Pork sausages and back bacon

Our free-range pork sausages and back bacon is sourced from Barrowdale, a single family-owned farm in Queensland. This farm was borne from a desire to raise pigs in a stress-free environment with a focus on animal welfare practices. The pigs are able to forage on pasture and are also provided with balanced diets to closely match those of their wild ancestors.

 

King Salmon

Our hot-smoked salmon portions are from New Zealand based, Regal. Regal King Salmon have implemented one of the most sustainable farming methods possible with the salmon hatched in protected, isolated spring waters before being transferred to sea farms in the pristine Marlborough Sounds. At the time of harvest, stocking rates are 2% with the remaining 98% being water meaning our salmon have plenty of room to swim and grow into mature fish for harvesting.

 

Chicken

Our chickens, from M&J Australia are cage free, hormone free and chlorine free. They are also Halal-certified and enjoy non-GMO feed.  M&J maintain the highest standards in the industry and have the following accreditations:

  • SGS HACCP, which certifies our suppliers’ commitment to producing and trading in safe food
  • SGS ISO9001, which certifies our suppliers’ commitment to product and service quality
  • JAS-ANZ, which certifies that our suppliers meet the highest level of assessment and professionalism in the industry.

Our packaging and quality control measures mean that we can offer up to 28 days shelf life on our primal cuts of beef and lamb, from the date of import. In particular, we use advanced atmospheric and packaging technology to pre-portion and ‘vacuum’ pack the meat at our facility in Australia. This technology contours the packaging to the shape of the meat for ultimate protection, as well as sealing the freshness from the paddock gate to your home in Singapore. At every step of the logistics supply chain, we closely maintain and monitor temperature and humidity to ensure there is minimal fluctuation.

As the process of making mince aerates the meat, it has a shorter shelf life of 10 days in the fridge.

We offer one-off, just in time delivery for ultimate convenience. However, due to the nature of our import cycle (currently every 28 days), our meat may have – for example – 20, 15 or 10 days left in the fridge, depending on where your order sits within our own cycle.
To benefit from a longer shelf life, join Auto Pilot and your meat will be delivered immediately on import every four weeks. There is no lock in contract just the convenience to modify, defer or cancel your order at any time.

This method of packing removes air from the package prior to sealing the contents. It reduces atmospheric oxygen, limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria, preventing evaporation of volatile components, and preventing contaminants that erode shelf life from entering the product. Keeping the meat in the vacuum packaging also improves the tenderness of the meat (known as ‘wet aging’).

This is the date we recommend you consume all meat in the fridge or move all your remaining chilled meat to the freezer. This will extend its shelf life by a further 3 months.

We recommend that any remaining (opened) meat portion is immediately sealed in an airtight container and placed in the fridge for no longer than 24 hours. That is; eat it the next day! Otherwise, freeze it.

Yes. Actually, our vacuum packaging helps here too. When you freeze meat you risk freezer burn due to moisture being wicked away from the surface of your meat. The airtight seal of our packaging prevents this from happening.

Our full range of beef, lamb, sausages and bacon have never been frozen from the date of import. However our Hot Smoked King Salmon portions are frozen at the time of import and are defrosted at the time of delivery. This is because salmon has a short shelf life chilled and, with no added preservatives, is the safest way of consuming this item.

Ideally in the fridge for 12 to 24 hours. Alternatively, in a shallow bowl with running tap water, and then cooked immediately. Do not under any circumstance, microwave your meat.

Quality fresh meat is up to 70% water. When meat is frozen, ice crystals can form, expand and cause significant damage to the muscle cells, resulting in a loss of taste and even nutrition. Once the meat thaws, the damaged cells may ‘leak’ salts, proteins and rich flavours that would otherwise be captured, reducing the meat quality and dining experience.

MSA was developed by the Australian red meat industry to improve the eating quality and consistency of beef and lamb for consumption. The grading system takes into account all factors, and in particular age and marbling, that affect produce from the paddock to the plate. Further details can be found here.

Our beef stock graze on lush grasslands and then on local grain for no more than 70 days to provide consistent portion sizes and flavour. Our lamb is free range and pasture raised, while also being hormone and antibiotic free.

Yes, our chicken and lamb are halal certified.

We have a regular presence at The Pantry Farmer’s Market, Loewen Gardens (Dempsey Hill). Please email us to find out when the next market is, and if we plan on having a stall there.
